RFID blocking for for passports, credit cards

Jump to last reply

I just discovered this product line while looking at miscellaneous travel products -- these are designed to protect chips in passports issued after 2006 and in newer credit cards -- from identity theft which can be 'read' through purses, pockets not carried in an "RFID blocker" (wallet, passport holder). Are you familiar with this? How common is this theft? This is a new one to my husband and me, but they are not terribly expensive, in the big picture, is it necessary or truly advisable? Your thoughts and experience please....
